Regarding VG, yeah, but we have officially been cut off by devs. They pretty much removed our staff (who are working on DC universe) and we havn't gotten a single update in a solid 9 months.

On to Rift.

I have been through the last 3 beta events and currenlty participating in the 4th. So far the immediate thing everyone notices is how polished gameplay is. It is one of the least buggy betas I've ever participated in. So all signs point to a solid launch at LEAST. Moving forward it felt kind of like Warhammer did, (IE it's RVR they have queue up pvp maps, and faction based pvp) but with proper PvE (proper group and raid content), with dungeons and questing that is more open ended and not exactly on a linear map. Like in warhammer the only thing to do together was PVP. Just as well the PvE feels more important than the PvP at the moment which is not the case for warhammer (I'll get to rifts). Additionally it has a unique class system where classes are "souls" and you can pick between any three classes with in your archtype to create your character. (it's pretty complicated with all the mixing and matching, but it really provides some unique creatings)

Ok, so do you remember those public quest things that seemed like a great idea but sucked cause no one every did them? Introdude the RIFT system. The rift events work almost identical to public quests (muliple stages with objectives that everyone can participate in) except that they become dynamic events that can literally pop up anywhere on the map. The difference here is that they really made these the games focul point. Rifts if left unclosed will spawn attacks, that will literally send small npc forces toward towns and attack. So far the communicty is really in to killing it. It's almost like they gave public quests a purpose. Additonally the rewards come in the form of rift currency that you can use to by decent gear and the benefits like xp and loot for doing the rifts. I was into the game in beta 3 when it was just pve. I almost feel like these guys took warhammer's concept and did it right.

I wish people would just take vg's concept and do it right but ...


I am also hammered right nowso hopefully this was informatie

Yeah, it sounds pretty good. I've been mulling it over. Might give it a try. It'd be nice if they'd get housing into it. More like eq2 and less like vg, preferably.

I definitely need a game with a focus on PvE. I'm not huge into pvp and raid. How's lag and all that? It get choppy with all the shit going on?

actually the best part is the perfromance. While frames do get slow they never get choppy. So you can effectively heal/attack see what's goin gone. From my end absolutely no hitching. I have a decent system though but not top end by far. The thing I was most impressed with was the first time I rendered like 40 players doing the same rift. It was decent....

Yes, I'm sad, I know, I'm still playing WoW and enjoying Cataclysm. I've thought about it and looked at other games and I just can't get interested in anything, nevertheless I'm still on the search... On a brighter note, I've been playing the shit out of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit on 360.

This Rift game is the only thing that's looked slightly worth a shit in quite awhile. Hopefully it'll be good.
